Forum: texts Subject: Re: Nervous about running EXE files downloaded viaTorrent

How about some sample links?

Torrent2Exe is merely a bittorrent client (with a built-in torrent). It does not contain the file you want to download; it is just a program which knows how to download the desired file from somewhere else using the bittorrent protocol. A torrent2exe .exe file is no better than a .torrent file.

At any rate, the exe files would not be IA files. EXEs in place of PDFs would be a highly regressive step! As such, the standard precautions apply (trusted sources only, etc.).
